I really doubt that JST is reachable, under any circumstances. As we know there hasn't been any evidence for any god, or GOD, or higher power ever presented, by anyone, not in thousands of years of recorded human history.
All they have - each and every one of them - is some mismash of beliefs that make them feel special, make them feel 'a part of' - make them feel they truly matter in the world. A seductive set of beliefs.
In reality, what they are is people full of fear, or people who simply cannot think critically, or simply dumb people born from the shallow end of the gene pool. People like JST simply cannot fathom that people die - and that's it. Being brainwashed from infancy doesn't help them much either (my view has long been that religious upbringing of children is mental child abuse, and should be illegal).
I used to feel sorry for the 85% of americans who are religious believers - now, I simply try to ignore them, live my life without them nearby, but it's not possible. These people vote based on their delusional beliefs, and that affects me and mine, and I won't have it if there's anything (ethically supportable) I can do to prevent it.
Not that I have much say in the matter, of course. What I can do is point out their absurd way of life and laugh, or do what I can to make sure my way of life isn't threatened by them - they would bring us all back to the dark ages if they had their way. If I had my way I'd move them all to some island somewhere, wall it up and cut it off from the rest of the world, let them kill each other off without affecting real people, thinking people, people who don't live in fear.
They are dangerous to Civilization - each and every one of them. Conflict, in my view, is (eventually) unavoidable.
